Leicester Tigers have dipped into the transfer market for the second timethis week, signing Swansea and British & Irish Lions prop Darren Morris.
This news comes just 24 hours after the Tigers announced that Italian star outside-half Ramiro Pez would be making his way to Welford Road from newly promoted Rotherham.
The 28-year-old versatile forward is an accomplished tighthead and loosehead player, making him a valuable addition to the Leicester front row after the recent announcments of the departures of Franck Tournaire, Perry Freshwater and Darren Garforth.
Morris has fifteen Wales caps and represented the British & Irish Lions in the 2001 tour of Australia. However, after the tour, Morris failed to make an impact at national level, this move is certain to raise Morris' profilea nd match sharpness.
As the countdown continues for RWC2015, Tournament Chief Executive Debbie Jevans visited the Millennium Stadium to discuss preparations for the eight matches and reveal the positive news that 100,000 tickets for games at the home of Welsh rugby have sold in the last seven days.
